THE ASHBURIAN 
SO MUCH — too much possibly — has been written about the September crisis in
international politics that there would seem to be no fresh viewpoint that has
not already been expressed, no avenue of thought that the seers and progrosti-
cators of the radio and press did not explore. There is, however, one aspect of those
momentous days that is of particular interest to us, and one that calls for comment,
we think, and that is the effect of the crisis on a community of boys such as ours.
It was only natural that older people, whose memory of the last war is still green,
should have been deeply concerned with the situation. It was not so natural that
young people should have interested themselves as they did in events which, to them,
must have seemed so far away, especially when we recollect that not a boy in the
School was born when the last armistice was signed and the world was supposedly
made safe for democracy. The peril to them must have seemed less imminent, and
the tram of suffering that war would bring less real than it did to their parents. But
what they fortunately lacked in previous experience they made up in the way they
brought their reasoning powers to bear on the threat, as they saw it.
Elsewhere in this issue there is printed an article which deals briefly with the
radio as a medium of propaganda and information in times of national danger.
Whatever our views as to the colour of the information imparted during that last week
in September, there can be no denying that the effect of those news broadcasts on
the School was immense. Everyone had different second-hand views, dependent on the
twist of a dial, and each free period and off-time half hour would result in some
variation of the last news bulletin. Conversation switched from games to prepared-
ness, and for a brief season the sports page in the daily press received only secondary
But nothing is an unmixed evil, and even the most fictitious description of hap-
penings abroad as witnessed by an N.B.C. commentator had its value. It was able,
for the first time in history, to bring home to potential soldiers before the outbreak of
war the horrible prospect of military conflict in our present order of civilization. In
1914 no such medium existed, and to us in Canada war never showed its true colours
until too late, until it had already involved the whole world. Three thousand miles
of water between ourselves and the scene of conflict seemed, then, such a reasonable
guarantee that our shores at least would remain inviolate. Today's youth, however,
harbours no such illusions. It has heard, albeit in a foreign tongue, and has read
translations of. Hitler's diatribes and fulminations, and removed from the influence
of mass hysteria has been able to judge reasonably of their worth. War today holds
for it no attractions, as it may have done to the young men of 1914. The braid of a
soldier's uniform is, today, only recognized as a symbol of rank in a branch of
notional defence, and the grim task of war's business would only be entered upon in
the full realization of its real significance, shorn of all attractiveness and false
For this true picture, at least, we ought to be thankful.
THE ASHBURIAN [H]
l\ T Read Over on June 17th Dr. Woollcombe, Founder and former Headmaster
of Ashbury, took the service in the Chapel.
Mr. Archdale has continued taking the majority of the services on Sundays this
term, preaching at Matins, and Dr. Woollcombe has taken the Communion Service
each month. We v/ere interested to read that when our former Headmaster read
Matins at All Saints' recently the Service was broadcast.
We welcome Mr. Hugh Huggins, B.A., LL.B., as School Organist. Mr. Huggins
is Organist at All Saints' Church and plays for us at morning prayers on each week-
day. His accompaniments are a great encouragement to singing and a noticeable
increase in those trying to sing is largely due to his playing.
On Sundays Miss Elsie Preece plays for the School.
Along with other parts of the buildings that received attention this summer, the
Chapel came in for its share of improvement, and a new carpet was laid down the
aisle. It is red like the one before it.
As was the case last year, the Prefects are again reading the lessons. The
Prefect-on-Duty for the day reads the lesson at evening prayers and on Sunday
morning the lesson is read by Barclay.
On October 16th the Boarders went to All Saints' for Matins, when Dr. Wooll-
combe preached the sermon. This was the first visit the School has made to this
city church for many years and we hope to go there again at some future date.
On October 23rd Mr. Porntt delivered an address at morning service.
Two guest preachers have addressed the School in the Chapel this term, the
Rev. Howard Clarke, Acting Rector of the Cathedral, and Mr. MacDermot, Principal
of Upper Canada College, Toronto.
As was the case last year, friends of the School and Old Boys have attended our
services on Sundays, and we are always glad to have them with us.
2] THE ASHBURIAN
WE are pleased to announce that the follovv'ing have joined the Board of
Governors of Ashbury: the Hon. Mr. Justice Barclay, Dr. T. H. Leggett, D.
Ross McMaster and Shirley E. Woods. The latter two are Old Boys of the
When we arrived back in September the smoothness with which our taxi
uj^ to the front door immediately attracted our attention downwards: a new
tarvia driveway had been laid during the holidays. This makes a tremen-
dous difference to the approach to the School and enhances its general appearance
greatly. A new roof has also been put on the building and fire doors set in at all
appropriate places. To complete the present rejuvenation we are indebted to Mrs.
H. S. Southam for a new flag pole which has been set up at the top of the senior field.
As regards future improvements we quote the following from the Ottawa Citizen of
October 1 5th :
Wire Fence at Ashbury
"A wire fence to cost in the neighborhood of $1,300 is to be erected at Ashbury
L-ollege School, Rockcliffe, in the near future. At present a stone wall borders the
school property facing on Mariposa avenue and runs for a short distance along the
eastern boundary of the grounds. The new fence will continue this eastern wall to
Maple Lane and along to the western boundary. The fencing will be about five feet
Now, at the moment of going to press, the fence is practically finished. It is a
great improvement and enhances the whole appearance of the School grounds.
It IS with regret that we record the resignation from the Staff of the House-
master, Mr. E. C. N. Edwards, who has returned to England. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Edwards leave many friends behind them, and to them and Neale the Ashburian
offers its best wishes for the future. Mr. Edwards is now on the Staff of West-
We have also said good-bye this year to Miss Hammill and Sergeant-Major
Stone who have left Ashbury. Miss Hammill has been many years connected with
the School and her retirement will call forth from all Old Boys who read this issue
of the Ashburian expressions of regard and good wishes.
We welcome to the Staff Mr. E. B Mercer, a graduate in mathematics of Dcl-
housie University, where he distinguished himself by winning an Entrance Scholarship
and later the Sidney C. Gland Scholarship. Mr. Mercer is assisting Mr. Johnson in
the moths, and science department.
We also extend a hearty welcome to Mr. W. A G McLeish, a graduate in Arts
of McMaster University. Mr. McLeish also holds Interim Diplomas from the
Ontario College of Education, University of Toronto, in Teaching, and Physical
THE ASHBURIAN 113]
Education, and is in charge of all gymnasium work in the School. This year the Boys
are learning Danish drill, and under Mr. McLeish's direction a regular course of
exercises is being followed with a view to developing correctly the various muscles
of the body.
We were sorry to hear of Mrs. Roper's death just after the June issue had gone
to press, and the Ashbunan, on behalf of the School, offers to His Grace the Arch-
bishop Its sincere sympathy. If this expression of sympathy is late it is only because
this is the first issue of the Magazine to be printed since His Grace's bereavement.
The School offers its heartiest congratulations to Mr. Waterfield upon his en-
gagement to Miss Daphne Sampson of Sidmouth, Devon, England.
On June 16th the Right Reverend L. W. B. Broughall, Lord Bishop of Niagara,
paid a brief, informal visit to the School. His Lordship was in town for the meetings
of the Synod and stayed with his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Brain.
Mr. and Mrs. Brain have left the Sydenham Court and are now living in the
We were sorry to wake up one morning and find that Miss Birch had been
whisked off to the hospital to have her appendix removed. Now, however, she is well
on the road to recovery and we hope will be better shortly.
Not to be outdone, Hyndman followed in Miss Birch's footsteps, and his appen-
dix was taken out early in November. As he is this year's Editor of the Ashburian
this was a great blow to the Magazine Staff. We have to thank Read for filling in as
Acting Editor just when clamourings for copy became most intense.
From the Ottawa Journal we learn that Mr. Tanner, who used to teach music
at Ashbury, was married in September to Miss Muriel Evelyn Butler. The wedding
took place in Wimbledon, England.
Miss Frances Claudet, who also in the past has given music lessons at the
School, has now entered the movies and is featured in a skating picture that was
made recently in Hollywood.
Mrs. H. A. Archdale, the Headmaster's mother, has been visiting Canada lately
and has been staying at Ashbury House.
The new House ties meet with general approval. The Conncught tie is the
School red with a narrow white stripe, and the Woollcombe tie is the School green
with a similar narrow white stripe. Both are extremely neat and together with the
new Prefects' tie — green with narrow red and white stripes spaced the same distance
opart — are a pleasant variation from the two old stand-bys, the School tie and the
Colour tie. The Juniors, of course, still keep their own distinctive tie.
On Friday, October 7th, Mrs. Brain entertained the Senior Football Squad at
supper, after which Squadron Leader Harding talked to the team on the subject
[ ] ^ J THE ASHBURIAN
at that time nearest their hearts— the food being finished— rugby. After the talk
there was a general discussion of the game and features of play.
On two occasions this term members of the science classes have had the op-
portunity of hearing interesting and instructive lectures. One evening they went to
the Research Building to hear Professor Ellis of London University speak on the atom
and the nucleus, and on the following day they went to the Research Annex to see
a film dealing with the steel industry.
On another occasion the School went to Elmwood to hear a lecture on Birds by
.\>r. Noble Rollins. The illustrations to this lecture added greatly to everybody's
On Thursday, November 17th, the Headmaster and Staff were At Home to
Parents and Governors. As will be recalled, the policy of having At Homes periodically
was inaugurated last year as a means whereby Parents and Masters could meet and
discuss matters of mutual interest. This function, while social, is different in nature
to the various other occasions in the school year in which Parents and members of
the Staff meet, and its official nature is emphasized by the fact that the Masters
wear their gowns. In a brief speech of welcome the Headmaster, on this occasion,
mentioned the excellent examination results of last June, results to be found else-
where in this number of the Ashburian.
The Headmaster has accepted the invitation of the Headmaster of B.C.S. to
visit the School for the week-end of December 3rd. At the Sunday morning service
in St. Mark's Chapel the Headmaster will deliver an address.
When the Drama League staged Libel in October Mr. Brain was cast in the
role of Sir Mark Loden. His performance evoked general commendation.
Not to be outdone by Ashbury, Elmwood intends holding a dance before the end
of the term. Some boys have already received invitations, and anticipation runs high.
In the Montreal Gazette of November 23rd, it was officially announced by the
Ministry of National Defence that Cadet Eric P. Earnshaw would go to England
shortly for training with the Royal Navy. Earnshaw, it will be remembered, passed
from Ashbury into the Canadian Navy last June, but has been at School this term
doing special work preparatory to going to England. He will sail from Halifax in
the Alaunio on New Year's Day — receiving pay, he informs us, as from the day he
steps aboard the liner — and will proceed direct to Portsmouth, where he will join
H MS Erebus. We wish him the best of luck in the Senior Service.
MEMORIAL WING FROM QUADRANGLE
OLD BOYS' NOTES
SINCE the last issue of the Ashbunan went to press several of our Old Boys have
married. In June Miss J. W. Wright of Montreal became the wife of Adam
Fauquier who, it will be remembered, was Head Prefect here 1929-1930, and in
the same month Dr. Kenneth Mackenzie married Miss Isobel Gillespie of Ottawa.
To both Old Boys the Magazine offers its heartiest congratulations. At the latter
wedding Jeffrey Carrique was best man.
In July Frederick Allan Heubach married Miss Margo Graydon of London,
Ontario. The wedding took place in Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal, with the
Dean officiating. Tommy Beauclerk was best man; Hugh Cowans, Roger Rowley and
Eric Beardmore were ushers. The latter also ceased being a bachelor this summer—
a fact foretold in our last issue, when his engagement to Miss Jean Ritchie was
announced — and after a honeymoon spent in Honolulu, California and the West they
have now taken up residence in the Town of Mount Royal.
Another marriage among the Old Boys was that of John Y. Stanfield, who was
married this autumn to Miss Margaret Bischoff of Irvington, New Jersey. They were
married in St. George's Church, Ste. Anne de Bellevue. Harold F. Stanfield acted as
best man for his brother. Mr. and Mrs Stanfield are now living on Lincoln Avenue,
Alostair Grant, who was at Ashbury from 1921 to 1925, was married in August
to Miss Elizabeth Mclnnes of Quebec. Fergus Grant, who was also at the. School,
was best man, and John Gilmour was one of the ushers.
The marriage was solemnized in Toronto early in September of Louise Dewar
and Robert Powell.
The last marriage to be recorded at the time of going to press is that of Dr.
J. T. Wilson and Miss Isabel Dickson. "Jock's" wedding took place in Chalmers
United Church, Ottawa, and the ceremony was performed by the Right Reverend Dr.
G G. D. Woodside. "Peter" Wilson was his brother's best man. On their return from
their honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Wilson will live on Roseberry Avenue.
Congratulations to Peter Aylen who is now married and living in Vancouver.
To all the above Old Boys and their newly acquired wives the Ashburian extends
its best wishes
We regret to report the death of John Graham, an Old Boy of some years who
died during the summer in London, Ontario During the War Mr. Graham was with
the R A F end since then had been with the Department of Public Works in Western
Ontario To his fomily we offer our sincere condolences.
THE ASHBURIAN 
We offer our sympathy too to C. W Fullerton, whose father died in October.
Lou Bates is in the movies. He is captain of a hockey team in a comedy picture
called "I See Ice," featuring George Formby, the Lancashire comedian. The picture
has only recently been released in England, where it was made, and has not yet been
sent to America.
At the Closing Exercises at the Royal Military College in June, W. F. Hadley
won the Governor-General's bronze medal for the cadet obtaining the third highest
marks throughout the entire course. He also won the Artillery Prize for the highest
marks in theoretical and practical artillery. Finally, Hadley won an Edith Boulton
Nordheimer Memorial Prize for the best essay dealing with Canadian and Imperial
Affairs, and secured a First Class in his Basis Subject. Congratulations. Hadley is now

THE JUNE CLOSING
ON June 20th, Ashbury College held its closing ceremonies for 1937-38.
In the morning the First Cricket Team ployed on exhibition match against a
side representing the Old Boys. There was a splendid turn-out of Old Ash-
Dunans, and some really good cricket was enjoyed by both sides. The match ended
in a draw — the perfect result for an Old Boys' Cricket Match.
Thanks to the rain which fell in the afternoon the actual Closing Ceremonies
had to be held in the gymnasium instead of outside, as planned. On the platform
there were present Colonel Newcombe, Chairman of the Board of Governors, and
Mrs Newcombe, Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Southam, Norman Wilson and the Hon. Senator
Cairine Wilson, the Hon. Mr. Justice H. H. Davis, Gilbert Fauquier, and Dr. G. P.
Woollcombe, former Headmaster.
This year the school was most fortunate in having the privilege of being ad-
dressed by the Hon. Mr. Justice H. H. Davis, who gave a talk at once instructive and
amusing. Stating that success often depended upon the use made of the "margin
of time", left after the day's work, Mr. Justice Davis said that, "it is the spirit of the
day that if you are not well started by forty you may not get started at all. If you
are going to make good in the world it is necessary that you start young." The
speaker concluded his remarks with a description of an address he had heard many
years ago from Lord Morley on the occasion of the famous historian being presented
with an honorary degree at the University of Toronto. Lord Morley referred to one
of two fundamental ideas which he thought young people should have. They were,
the speaker said, "That there is a difference between right and wrong, and there is
a relation between cause and effect."
Mr. Archdale, the Headmaster, then presented his annual report in which he
stressed not only the fine showing of the school in both studies and athletics but
also the health of the School during the post year. He also thanked Mrs. C. H.
Buck, the Principal of Elmwood, and Miss J. S. Austin, Principal of Rockcliffe Public
School, for their co-operation in various activities. He extended to Col. Wurtele,
MC, and the officers of the G.G.F.G. his appreciation of their help in making the
Cadet Corps a success. He also congratulated Copt. Johnson, who as the cadet in-
structor was directly responsible for the fine showing of the Cadets on their parades.
Col. Newcombe thanked both Mr Archdale and Mr. Justice Davis on behalf of
the Board of Governors for their speeches. Speaking of the latter, he said that,
"in the opinion of those who know him, no man in Canada has more thoroughly at-
tained to his ideals and done more to create the highest respect for the traditions
of his profession, the integrity of the bench and the urge to public service."
Col. Newcombe also paid tribute to Dr. Woollcombe who retired a few years
ago, "after forty odd years of service as Founder and Headmaster of Ashbury," and
THE ASHBURIAN 
who was present once again at the school closing. The Chairman then called upon
W. H. Ellis to give the valedictory address.
Speaking for the class of 1938, Ellis expressed their gratitude for the years
spent at Ashbury and the training and help they had received.
The prizes for both study and sports were then presented by Mrs. Newcombe,
Senator Cainne V^ilson and Mrs. H. S. Southam. Prominent among the prize winners
was L. F. Burrows, who won both the Governor-General's Medal and the 'Southam
Cup. Mr. Archdale read out the names of the recipients as follows:

SCHOLARSHIPS AT ASHBURY
We are happy to be able to announce that the first winner of a Coronation
Scholarship at Ashbury is the son of an old boy. Jeffrey Hughson was awarded a
Scholarship in September. He is the son of J. W. Hughson (1902-1908).
We also have another holder of the Leonard Foundation Scholarship in David
We will be glad to hear of any likely candidates, either for the Coronation
Scholarships which are open to all boys under fourteen and consist of a competitive
examination, or for the Leonard Foundation Scholarships which are open to all boys
of fourteen years and over, especially to the sons of Clergymen, School Teachers,
Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Men, and graduates of the R.M.C. of
Canada, Members of the Mining end Metallurgical Institute of Canada. There is no
examination for this, but candidates are selected by the Board of Trustees.
 THE ASHBURIAN
THROUGH THE YEARS
LAST year the Ashburian reprinted some extracts from past numbers and the
favourable comment thereon has encouraged us to make it a regular feature.
Below will be found some extracts from the Ashbunon of 1909, c period when
the Ashburian was revived after a short interval.
It is to be hoped that these extracts will prove interesting to both past and
present members of the school.
(The school has not in its /possession any copies of the Ashbiiriivi f^rez'ioits to
1909. The Editors would be z-ery grateful for the opf'ortunitx of looking at any
which may be in the possession of an Old Boy.)
The first extract is from the Editorial in the first issue of 1909 and it is in-
teresting to notice that ive are still making the same appeal without z'ery great
Lost of our long list of interesting features comes that of original contributions.
I he editors are anxious to encourage the boys in this. The writing of good English
is a rare and valuable accomplishment — and the greatest help to its attainment is
the sight of one's work in print. There is no better test. In view of the above we
invite contributions in prose or verse — on any subject whatever — summer trips, week-
end experiences, fiction, or upon any sport. These, if accepted, will be printed under
the signature of the author — no anonymous contribution being accepted.
Coming under the head of original contributions will be letters from Old Ash-
burians. These will be of the greatest interest to the present boys and staff, and it is
hoped that any Old Boy who reads this page will confer a favour upon the editors by
sending in a letter about his present life, amusements, and his recollections of the
The reference to Boy Scouts causes one a pang of regret that in a school of
this sice there is hardly room for both Cadet Carps and Bo\ Scouts. That both
were at that time lire institutions is seen by the following passage:
Lately — in response to a desire on the part of the Juniors — the Baden-Powell
Boy Scout movement was introduced into the College. The work has been under-
taken by Mr. Hooper, who was secretary for the Hamilton organization last year, and
G council, consisting of the Ashbury Staff.
As It IS not the desire of Scouts to be conspicuous or to advertise their presence,
little is being heard of the growth of the movement. The Scout sign, however, is
being exchanged between a greoter number of boys each week, the significant tie-
THE ASHBURIAN 
knot is becoming noticeable, and silent messages are daily being transmitted across
ever-widening distances from hill-side to hill-side.
No small pains are being taken this term to turn out a really smart and business-
like Cadet Corps. Two parades are being held every week, which all Seniors attend;
but there is still considerable lee-way to make up, and we shall not acquit ourselves
honourably at the Inspection unless the drills are carried out with more energy and
keenness. Much will depend upon the N.C.O.'s and in particular upon the sergeants,
both in keeping strict discipline in the ranks, and in setting an example of smartness.
Boys sometimes make disappointing N.C.O's It requires moral courage to order
about one's school -fellows — not a little natural dignity to fulfill in a becoming man-
ner a position of temporary superiority. Thus the position of sergeant in a School
Corps IS something of a test of character; it is often the first taste of leadership that
a boy gets; but if he has any real "grit" in him he will prove himself master of the
situation after the first few drills.
The next three e.rtraets need no couunent:
In smaller things 'of equal importance though) — the proper sporting spirit in
all games during the holidays — decent behaviour and manners, a modest rather than
a boastful air — an absence of that eternal flow of silly, would-be-smart jokes (all
a hundred years old generally); in these too great credit accrues, not only to the boys,
but to the school to which they belong. If our chaps stand during the playing of the
National Anthem, instead of hustling into their overcoats like the crowd, if they
attend to the wants of others before their own, if they show respect for the opinions
and wishes of their parents and elders, and thus, outside the School show super-
iority over others, they will do as much for Ashbury as do those who win the games
and pass the exams.
Thus the out-of-sehool test is the only real one. We get to think a lot of our-
selves and our powers sometimes. Then we meet outsiders and get a rude but salu-
tary "jolt". After a while these disappointments have their effect, and we find
ourselves improving — really improving.
Last term a little surprise was "sprung on us all" when, in roll call, the Head-
master announced that a new honorary position was to be created among us. He
called forward M. O'Halloran and, after congratulating him upon the steady interest
he had always taken in the welfare of the College — upon his hard work in coaching
the Junior football team to victory, and the attitude he had always taken in putting
Ashbury first and self last — greeted him as first Ashbury School Captain

Last year wc put in a passage about the changing of the colours of the School,
and this tee do again, making a longer extract as ice consider it of some interest
After some hesitation and a good deal of deliberation the Headmaster arrived
at a momentous conclusion some two months ago. He decided to change the colours
of the School.
There were many reasons for taking this important step. The old colours — blue
are red — while satisfactory enough for a good many years, are now no longer dis-
tinctive. Tuques, sweaters, stockings in different combinations of these two colours
have become so common that they are no longer associated with any particular
institution — every boy wears them, all shops sell them.
Now it is easy enough to know all the rules regarding colour combinations, and
not hard to pick out the colours which are pleasing to the eye on a field or rink;
but it was found impossible to get any combination of two colours not already adopted
by someone else. Then three were tried. Again it was found that nearly all the
combinations of three were already taken. However, there was one group that, at
least in Ottawa, had not apparently, been thought of; namely, cardinal, white and
dark green. This being finally decided on, the question of design came next. The
present Editor was given the cheerful task of designing the caps, coats, sweaters,
stockings, etc. and he had many a struggle over it. Finally, he produced a set which
was approved. Then an artist was necessary to paint the plate for an engraving in
colours. One of our boys. Jack Harvey, being sufficiently talented, undertook the
task, and carried it out very creditably.

ASHBURY JUNIORS vs. CLIFFSIDE JUNIORS
The return match was played on Dey's nnk on Gladstone Avenue, on Saturday,
January 28th. The two teams had agreed to play on January 21st, but owing to
some misunderstanding, they found the nnk taken by two other teams. The match
was therefore postponed until the following Saturday. Unfortunately there was no
efficient referee available, and both sides indulged in rough play. In the second half
THE ASHBURIAN 
this was carried to excess, and as far as the spectators were concerned, the game
lost all interest. Cliffsides scored the first goal, but it was not long before Bowie
equalized. Shortly before half time Cliffsides scored again with an easy shot and
at half-time the score was 2 - 1 in favour of Cliffsides.
In the second half Hennessey II scored and the referee allowed it. But after
much protesting by Cliffsides, he changed his mind and gave it off-side. From the
face-off Hennessey I, secured the puck and scored. Soon after Bowie scored again.
For the rest of the game Ashbury was on the defensive. CI iff side failed to score
again, and when the whistle blew for time, the score was 3 - 2 in favour of Ashbury.
The team was as follows:
Reid I <Goah, Birkett II (point), Hennessey I 'cover point), Bowie (centre),
Maclaren I (right wing), Reid II deft wing^, Maunsell (rover).
Now that summer is almost upon us, thoughts naturally turn toward the greatest
of all summer sports — cricket. With our new field, this year should see a revived
interest in the grand old game. It isn't a noisy game; it isn't a particularly strenu-
ous game, but it is a thoroughly clean, scientific game, and as such should appeal
to all Ashburians.

learning to shoot, we hope to hear of more Ashbury boys figuring on the Rifle teams
of the different colleges.
Eric Irwin, another one-time Ashbury boy, was on the McGill football team which
gave Varsity such a close run.

CADET CORPS NOTES
By Cadet Captain J. C. Viets.
Promotions: The only promotions made so far, namely those of the Cadet Officers
and Cadet Warrant Officers, are shown with the School Officers at the beginning
of the Magazine. An N. C. O.'s class, made up of any members of the Corps
who care to join, has been started. An encouraging response was made and
some twenty-four cadets are now working for the tests, on the basis of which the
remaining promotions will be made. From the keen work shown it is not going to
be easy to make the final choice. The Corps has recently obtained five new ser-
geant's sashes, worn for the first time on Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day Parade: November 1 1th, was a warm day this year so the Corps
was able to parade to the Hill without greatcoats, and thus the work spent on
brass-work and leather was not obscured by heavy covering. On his occasion the
Corps marched, as it has in the past, with the Governor-General's Footguards,
with which regiment we are proud to be affiliated. The Guards, incidentally,
looked very smart in their new grey greatcoats. After the parade the Corps
was addressed by Col. Price in the Guards' Officers' Mess, when the unit was
congratulated on its smartness. We hove to thank Col. Wurtele and the
Officers for the hospitality extended to us on this occasion.
Shooting: In the D.C.R.A. this year the senior team in shooting raised its percentage
from 86.33 to 90.87, and the junior team from 79.91 to 86.79. Both teams
moved from 3rd to 2nd class, and several places up in the list. Grant is to be
congratulated in winning the Strathcona Shooting Medal, awarded for the best
Shot in the school.
First Aid: One Senior and two Junior First Aid teams have been entered in the
Wallace Nesbitt Trophy competitions.
Captain Johnson is again O.C the Corps, and the success of the boys' shoot-
ing and their smartness on parade only reflects on his patience and training.

THE SEASON, 1938.
Reviewed by I. A. Barclay, Captain First XI.
THIS year's team was a very young one, but its keenness and the untiring efforts
of Mr. Brain soon made up for the fact that there were only four members of
last year's team back. Owing to this the team was slow in starting, but soon
Mr. Brain's energetic coaching bore fruit and after the first two games some very
satisfactory results were shown. Although there was not the necessary scoring
punch, a very strong defensive team began to develop. The standard of bowling was
good all season, and the support given to them in the field was all that could be
The experience that we gained in the two games with New Edinburgh and
Cathedral Cricket Clubs was very beneficial. And we would like to take this oppor-
tunity to thank these teams for making possible these very enjoyable games.
We won our annual fixture with L.C.C., but lost to B.C.S. by the narrow margin
of six runs. We were unfortunate in this game in having one of our best batsmen
run out before he received a ball. On Closing Day we had the most enjoyable Old
Boys Match of many years. They put us in, and some twenty of our ancestors pro-
ceeded to field out to us in relays, to the excellent bowling of Powell and Snelling.
We declared shortly after lunch and, in spite of a delightful innings by Oppe, managed
to get out ten of our opponents. Their ranks, however, were not yet demolished, and
the game was very properly adjudged a draw.
As all but two of last year's team will be back for next season we are looking
forward with confidence to a good year.
FIRST XI CHARACTERS
By A. D. Brain, Esq.
I. A. BARCLAY, Captain, 3rd year on team. Led his team with great ability and
keenness both by precept and example. A left-handed batsman with a sound
defence who punishes short pitched bowling very effectively: should strive to
develop his forward play. His right arm medium pace bowling was the mainstay
of the attack: he has a good command of length, breaks back sharply and can
always be depended on to keep an end going. A safe field anywhere close to
By I. A. Barclay, Captain First XI.
W. A. GRANT, 3rd year on team. As a batsman he did not really fulfill the promise
of the last two years. He is rather apt to get himself out at the start of his
innings, but once set, scores freely with good shots, especially on the off. De-
veloped into an excellent slow medium bowler. A good field.
P6] THE ASHBURIAN
R. B. MAIN, 1st year on team. A much improved cricketer with some really good
forcing shots. His defence is rather crude, but a little more experience should
improve it greatly. If he takes pains he may develop into a useful pace bowler
next year. A good field who is frequently brilliant in the slips.
J. C. PHILLIPS, 1st year on team. A powerful left-handed batsman who made runs
when they were badly wanted. His ground fielding and catching at silly mid-
off were remarkable, and of great value to the team.
McCALLUM, 2nd year on team. A stylish bat who needs to improve his defence on
the leg stump. Very quick in the field, but must learn how to throw to the
WILGRESS I, 1st year on team. Kept wicket well although inexperienced. Should
be very valuable next year. Shows promise as a hitter.
WILGRESS II, 1st year on team. Has the makings of an opening batsman. A slow
bowler with a deceptive flight but must learn to pitch the ball up and not
bowl to leg.
WALLACE, 1st year on team. Has greatly improved his batting and with more ex-
perience should score freely. Fields and throws well but must cultivate alertness.
STEDMAN, 1st year on team. Has some good shots on the off, but is apt to get
himself out through over-eagerness. A keen field.
BURROWS I, 1st year on team. Has a good forward stroke and a well-timed straight
drive but should not try to score fast before he is set. A good field, with a safe
pair of hands and a fine return to the wicket.
BURROWS II, 1st year on team. Has a good pair of wrists but must watch the ball
more closely. An excellent field.
^^URRAY I, 3rd year on team A good field with an exceptional throwing arm.

THE SEASON, 1938.
Reviewed by R. A. Borden, Captain First XII.
THIS year our football season opened with a nucleus of last year's team and
quite a few new prospects for the side. After careful coaching arid getting
into condition, we played our first game, against Nepean High School Seniors.
The game ended with Ashbury defeating Nepean High School 12-5. We played
them again and found them a much improved team, but after a fast game we again
beat them 12-5.
By this time the team were all playing together, and, in very high spirits we left
for Bishop's College School in Lennoxville. Although the team played well. Bishop's
seemed to tackle and drive |ust a bit harder than we did, and in the end we suffered
our first defeat, 18-5.
After a week's concentrated work on our end runs and forward pass plays we
played as a curtain raiser for the McGill-U. of O. game at Varsity Oval, against the
Ottawa University Senior Interscholastic team. The game was very evenly played
and there were many fast, hard hitting plays sent over by both sides. U. of 0. scored
a placement and two singles, but in the last quarter we moved right down the field
without a stop, to tie them 5 - 5. After this we could have won the game with a
rouge but a wrong play was made, and the game ended in a tie. By this time the
team was really beginning to show championship form, and the new members were
getting into their stride.
We played Lower Canada on a Saturday morning in late October, and although
they were trying the whole game we ran all over them with a series of well timed
line plunge and fast end runs. The game ended with Ashbury winning 51 - 5, thus
atoning to a certain extent for defeats suffered at their hands in past years.
Our next fixture was the annual game versus the Old Boys They turned up with
a lot of weight, and little equioment. They had hard hitting interference and on
the whole had the best team they have had for quite a number of years. The game
was quite fast and through their fine defence and our own lack of practice we hod
a little trouble in getting started. The Old Boys led 10 - 6 at half time. Then, with
some brilliant runs and team work, we finally closed our season by beating the Old
Boys for the first time in three years 22 - 10.
Our Intermediate Team also had a very successful season. They were led by a
very capable captain ,n Wiigress I, who knew how to handle his team perfectly.
They played three games and emerged on the top in all of them This w- II be a
great asset to the Senior team next year, and has also been very helpful to those
who will be Intermediates next year. •

THE ASHBURIAN 
The team would like to thank our coach, Mr. Brain, for his excellent coaching
and great patience with the team. He took much time in going over and over our
plays, both in interesting chalk-talks and scrimmages. He had a party for both teams,
and was able to secure as his guest of honour Squadron Leader Dove Harding, who
gave us a most interesting and beneficial talk on the fundamentals of the game.
The team would also like to thank Mr. McLeish for his help in assisting Mr.
Brain, for his excellent line coaching, and for his most competent refereeing'in games.
On the whole the season was a most satisfactory one, and by far the best the
School has had for some years, regaining for Ashbury some of its former prestige,
the culmination of the effort of the past two years. We again thank Mr. Brain for
his splendid efforts with the team. Without them we could not possibly have gone
as far as we did, nor could we have made the most of our limited material. Those
of us who Will not be back next year wish him and the team the best of luck, and we
will be looking forward to that Old Boys' game,

R. A. BORDEN (Captain) Middle, 3rd year on team. A natural leader who fired his
men with enthusiasm both on the field and off. A powerful line plunger and a
sure tackier on the line, he was equally effective in opening up holes for other
ball carriers. To his influence the improvement in the School's football is

J. C. VIETS (Vice-Captain), Inside, 3rd year on team. His work in the middle of
the line was invaluable in making interference for ball carriers and in blocking
on kick formations. A great asset on the defensive.
J. K. C WALLACE, Half, 4th year on team. Handled the punting assignment ex-
cellently, and tackled well on occasion. A powerful runner and a fairly safe
catch, but must learn to take the ball on the run and use all his speed. An
accurate forward passer.
W. A. GRANT, Half, 3rd year on team. Tackled consistently on the secondary de-
fence and made good interference. A most reliable line plunger and very fast
on end runs.
I. A. BARCLAY, Quarter, 2nd year on team. Turned in an excellent performance as
Quarter. Tackled and caught well, and at intercepting forward passes and line
plunging he was at his best.
R. B. MAIN, Flying Wing, 2nd year on team. Proved his worth as a good punter,

great ability in running back kicks, and going on end runs.

R. STEDMAN, Inside, 2nd year on team. Was excellent in the line, and also a sure
tackier who could be depended on to do his best in any circumstances.
A. M. WILSON, Snap, 2nd year on team. A tackier whose determination more than
compensated for his lack of weight. His snapping was always to be depended
J. S. DREW, Middle, 1st year on team. An excellent ball carrier who learnt to moke
the most of the interference made for him in the line, but still has something to
learn about making interference for others. A sure tackier on the secondary
T. R. WOOD, Half, 1st year on team. A good all round player, who should learn to
concentrate on the opposing team, not on the individual.
R. J. THOMSON, Outside, 1st year on team. Fairly quick in getting down the field
under kicks, and a hard tackier. Could also play on the secondary defence.
A good pass receiver.
BURROWS, Half, 1st year on team. Is young and comparatively new to the game.
A strong broken field runner, but still a little inclined to run across the ground
instead of straight ahead.
THOMAS, Inside, 1st year on team. In spite of lack of experience, he proved his
worth as a linesman who understood his duties, and he did them well.
SMART, Inside, 1st year on team. A hard working linesman who should develop into
a really useful player next year. Shows promise as a ball carrier also.

very light, did some good tackling.

NEPEAN HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS, HOME, WON 12 - 5.
The game was played on a fast, dry field on Saturday, October 1st, and was quite
a close one, Ashbury overcoming a Nepean lead to win the decision.
Ashbury opened the scoring in the first quarter when Wallace kicked a rouge,
Maclaren making the tackle. Nepean, however, came back in the next quarter with
a touchdown, which was unconverted and put them in the lead 5-1. In 'the same
quarter, after a series of plays, Ashbury brought the ball from centre field to the
Nepean five yard line. From there Grant plunged over to put Ashbury in the lead
again by a score of 6 - 5. The convert was again missed and half time came with
no further change in score.
Soon after the start of the third quarter. Grant broke away on an end run to the
left and secured another unconverted touchdown to make it 1 1 - 5 for Ashbury.
Nepean pressed hard, but were unsuccessful and Wallace added another point
on a rouge before the end of the game to leave Ashbury the winners, 12-5.
NEPEAN HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS, HOME, WON 12 - 5.
Ashbury played its second game against Nepean High on October 12th, in the
afternoon. The school opened the scoring in the first quarter when Main kicked to
the deadli'^e for a point. They scored again in the second period when Drew, the
new middle wing, plunged over for a touchdown. Wallace converted with a drop-
kick and the score was 7 - at half time.
During the second half, Nepean began to drive their opponents back, taking
advantage of the growing darkness to throw a series of forward passes. Barclay,
however, on a quarter-back sneak, scored a try for Ashbury, making the score 12-0
as the convert was not made. Soon after this, a Nepean pass of thirty yards on the
last ploy of the game was completed, and a touchdown was scored. The game
finished with Ashbury leading 12-5.
BISHOP'S COLLEGE SCHOOL, AWAY, LOST 5 - 18.
Ashbury played their annual fixture against B.C.S. at their ground in Lennox-
ville on Saturday morning, Oct. 15th. After spending Friday night in Sherbrooke,
the team drove out to the school and changed there. The day was cloudy and the
field rather soft, ideal for football. A number of Old Ashburians were down to
cheer on their old school, and managed to make themselves heard in the face of
almost overwhelming opposition.
Borden elected to kick, and Ashbury kicked-off to the Bishop's halves who ran
the ball back several yards. Pressing hard from the start Bishop's, after a few
minutes, were in a position from whence they were able to kick a rouge. The School
led by Drew's plunging took the ball to centre field and Main kicked a long one
down to the Bishop's ten yard line end it seemed as though Ashbury were soon to be
in a scoring position. Bishop's, however, caught the school napping on a "sleeper play"
and Powis, who caught the forward pass, had an unmolested run for a touchdown
v.hich was converted, and the quarter ended with Bishop's leading 7-0.
After the kick-off which followed, Ashbury settled down and marched up the
field. They were rewarded when, following a thirty yard run by Barclay, Main gave
Wallace a beautiful pass on an end run and Ashbury scored a touchdown. This
v^os not converted and at half-time Bishop's still led by a score of 7 - 5.
By this time, thanks to the very effective blocking of the Bishop's team, the
Ashbury line was beginning to weaken and this weakening proved disastrous on
several vital occasions in the second half, both on attack and defence.
Twice the Ashbury defence cracked wide open and Norsworthy added two more
touchdowns, one of which they converted.
Despite their efforts Ashbury were unable to score again and although they
had a fair share of the game from a territorial point of view they were unable to
capitalize on their chances and the game ended with the score 18 - 5 in favour of
UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA SENIOR INTERSCHOLASTIC, AWAY, TIED 5 - 5.
Early Saturday afternoon, October 22nd, the team went by bus to the Varsity
Oval, where they played Ottawa University's Senior Interscholastic Team. The game
was a preliminary feature before the U. of 0. - McGill Match, and there was
a lorge crowd in the grandstand to witness the struggle.
We took the kick-off and settled down for a good game. We were playing
according to their rules which allowed five yards running interference, and the first
few times that Ottawa U. carried the ball, they ripped our line open. We finally
managed, however, to get possession of the ball on our four yard line and succeeded
in carrying it out to centre field where we were forced to kick.
Unfortunately the Ottawa U. captain hod his leg broken during this man-
oeuvre when he tackled one of our men. Nevertheless, after a delay of several
minutes during which the injured player was corned off the field, Ottawa U. settled
down to hard play, and before long we had a score of 5 points against us, o field
goal and two rouges.
The School did not seem to ploy as well as they should. It should not have
taken them more than one quarter to get used to the running interference, but it
seemed to bother them throughout the game
If the team hod played during the whole time with the spirit and fight they
showed in the lost five minutes of the game, this might be, as is often the cose, a
different story. They really showed power in the lost few minutes and, making a
THE ASHBURIAN 
break when an Ottawa U. pass was intercepted, an unconverted touchdown was
scored by Grant. In three plays we brought the kick-off back to our opponents'
twenty-five yard line, where we were in position to kick an easy single for the win-
ning point in the last play of the game, but our kicker elected to try for a touch-in-
goal and sliced his punt into touch a few yards off. The final whistle blew, leaving
the score 5 all.
LOWER CANADA COLLEGE, HOME, WON 51 - 5.
The School swept to a 51 - 5 victory over Lower Canada College in the annual
fixture between the two schools on Saturday, Octber 29th. The school marked up
twelve points in the first quarter and held a wide margin for the rest of the game.
A short kick by Lower Canada which gave Ashbury possession at mid-field set
the stage for the opening score with Barclay going over for a touchdown after a
series of end runs and plunges. Main converted from placement, and a few minutes
later he reeled off a long run to put us in scoring position again. Another drive
resulted in Burrows going over standing up from an end-run formation, and Main
again converted as the quarter ended.
Lower Canada kicked off and they secured a first down when the School was
penalized for illegal interference. They promptly capitalized on this with a well
executed forward pass for an unconverted touchdown.
Following the Lower Canada score, the School took command and allowed their
opponents little of the ball. An offensive of end runs, plunges and passes, in which
Wood was particularly noticeable for long gains around the end, marched them
down the field for seven touchdowns scored by Drew, Grant, Hersey and Barclay.
In the third quarter Lower Canada College made a gallant stand but in the
last period the School added 21 points.
Wilson snapped a faultless game and also distinguished himself with some
good tackling, as did Maclaren, Smart and Thomson. The blocking of Viets and the
plunging of Borden were also noticeable. Wallace and Mam punted with good
length and accuracy, and the latter kicked five converts from placement, one other
being improved by means of a running play.
OLD BOYS, HOME, WON 22 - 10.
By H. D. L. Snelling, Esq. (Ashbury 1928 to 1937)
Friday, November the eleventh, was the day it took place. No, not the signing
of the peace treaty — that also happened — but the big event, The Old Boys' Game.
Anybody out for a walk that lovely afternoon who chanced to be outside the
School Grounds might have paused to listen to an unusual amount of wheezing and
grunting. Well it was us, the Old Boys. We never know when to quit. Every year
we are back showing the kids how it should be done and how we did it. The result
was 22-10 and we were in our usual spot, on the short end. Naturally we were shy
one or two players, and of course all shy on condition. We started all right but we
lost three men during the game. Anybody would think it was six-man football.
Everybody was a quarter back. I think the person who shouted loudest finally
was slated to call signals, but we saw to it that he carried the ball now and then.
No sir — there was none of that. We had huddles, though I can't say why, for nothing
in the way of formulating plays was accomplished. The huddle consisted of a slow
rumble which mounted to a mad roar, and then we marched up to the ball, closed
our eyes, snapped it out, and fell over. What a team! Perhaps you have heard of
a smooth and rhythmic attack. Ours was all effort. As for defence — we had none.
Down field tackling was unheard of. We just waited for them to run the ball back.
Half time ended with the score 10 - 5 in our favour. Don't ask me who scored
;r,e points, I don't know and I don't care; all I know is I didn't, so there!
The second spasm had barely started when we settled down and the School once
more resumed the lead. The fourth quarter was a nightmare of things in red sweaters
running past us, and trying to stop our own men running off the field.
It ended finally. Somehow we got up and dressed. Now when writing this
I am actually looking forward to the next encounter. I must have been hit on the
The following made up the Old Boys' team: R. Rowley (Captain), J. Rowley,
G. Perodeau, L. Snellmg, L. Courtney, W. MacBrien, R. Davidson, G. Guthrie, B.
O'Brien, A. Farr, E. Blackburn, R. Denison, F. Castonguay.
MODEL OLD BOYS, HOME, WON 22 - 6.
The Intermediate season started with a game on October 21st against the
Model Old Boys. Our opponents kicked off to us and from a quick formation Wil-
gress I threw c poss to Burrows who ran thirty yards with it. From there, Hertzberg
kicked a single to start our scoring A few minutes later Wilgress threw another
pass to Burrows who ran for a touchdown, which was unconverted Just before half
time, Wilgress took the ball on a quarter-bock sneak and ran ten yards for a touch-
down. Again the convert went astray and at the end of the half the score stood 1 1 -0.
In the second half, Smart starred end earned two touchdowns for our side. The
first was converted with a pass to Burrows This gave us a lead of 22 - However,
in the dying moments of the game, Denis Ross of their side intercepted one of our
forward posses and ran for a touchdown which was converted Final score 22 - 6.
THE ASHBURJAN 
Although our opponents were somewhat lighter, they were determined and their
energy was rewarded with this touchdown in the last quarter.
Smart and Burrows starred for Ashbury, while Fripp was outstanding for the
ROCKCLIFFE PUBLIC SCHOOL OLD BOYS, HOME, WON 29 - 0.
On October 28th, the Intermediates scored a decisive victory over the Public
School's Old Boys on the Ashbury field.
Ashbury had the advantage from the start and the ball was kept in the oppon-
ents' end of the field most of the game, due largely to the superior interference and
greater speed from scrimmage of our team. For the most part the Ashbury attack
was led by Wilgress I, Burrows and Hertzberg. The visiting team failed to score at
. all and the final victory was to the tune of 29-0.
MODEL OLD BOYS, HOME, WON 12 - 6.
On Saturday, November 12th the School's Intermediates chalked up another
victory over the Model Old Boys. In the previous game with this team we had scored
a fairly easy victory, but this match was much more evenly contested and in the first
half the Model Old Boys held their own.
The scoring started with Model gaining a touchdown, which they converted.
After this Burrows scored a touchdown for the School and Hertzberg got a single.
Later in the game a further touchdown was scored for us by McCallum, and this was
converted by Hertzberg.
There was no further scoring by either side before the final whistle blew.
The line-up for most of the Intermediate games was as follows: Flying Wing,
Burrows. Halves, Hertzberg, Hughson II, McCallum. Quarter, Wilgress I (Captain).
Snap, Winter. Insides, Cowans, Snell I. Middles, Smart, Drake, Wilgress II. Out-
sides, MacGowan, Wilson II.
Stonding W Green, R G Goodwin, J T H Leggett, R B Bailey, F E Bronson.
Seated: J B Eorie, E D Wilgress, L. J. McCollum 'Captain), J. A. MacGowan, D G Weary
THE ASHBURIAN ' [^91
THE SEASON, 1938.
Reviewed by the Headmaster.
FOR various reasons, not the least of which has been the wonderful weather, we
have hod much more soccer than in recent years. This, added to the greaf
keenness shown, has raised the standard considerably. The fact that skill and
science, not to mention the use of brains, are more effective than brute force and
kick and rush methods is beginning to penetrate. It is beginning to be realized that
force is very useful properly applied at the right moment, but useless otherwise.
The coaching of Mr. Johnson last year has had a great deal to do with all this,
and has mode his successor's work much easier. The teams have also realized the
importance of team work and position, which has contributed largely to the success-
ful results. There is still, however, a general weakness in kicking and ball control,
only overcome by practice. With this remedied we should have an even better
season next year.
LOWER CANADA COLLEGE, HOME, DRAW 1-1.
On October 29th, the Lower Canada Soccer XI played the School on the home
field. It was a cold, crisp day. Ashbury won the kick-off and though the team
fought hard their errors in kicking prevented any score.
At half time the score was ml, and the second half sow an intensive attack on
the Ashbury goal which resulted in a score for L C.C. Determined to even the score
the School earned the play into the enemy half and after some anxious moments
Viets II succeeded in getting the ball past their goal-keeper.
After this last goal there was no further scoring in the gome.

On Saturday, November 19th, the Senior Soccer XI concluded a very successful
season by defeating Lower Canada College in Montreal.
The weather for the game was ideal, but the ground was rather slippery owing
to a heavy rainfall the day before, and this was the cause of an unfortunate acci-
dent when one of Ashbury's best players, Lawrence I, broke his leg )ust after half

The game commenced with both teams playing well, and after a hard struggle
Bailey scored for Ashbury by heading the ball beautifully into the goal — a real, pro-
essional shot. Following this goal L.C.C. pressed hard, but Ashbury's defence was

SELWYN HOUSE, HOME, LOST 1 - 2.
On Saturday, October 1 5th, Selwyn House sent a team to play an Under Fifteen
match. The weather was brilliant, but too hot, if anything, for soccer.
Selwyn House won the toss and chose ends. The Montrealers managed to score
two goals in the first half. Ashbury failed to score each time it tried.
In the second half the School's forward line was changed and Mordy secured our
lone goal. It was a good and even game and on many occasions both goals were
thoroughly bombarded. The respective goal-keepers deserve credit for withstand-
ing some hard attacks.

dangerously near the opposing team's goal, but we failed to score. Selwyn House,
however, managed to put one past Key who, in goal, played spectacularly, making
some really remarkable saves.
The second half started with Selwyn House in a 1 - lead, but Viets II passed

for the University, and under his direction we hope to become moderately proficient
at this new form of sport.

THE ASHBURIAN 
The School, through the Ashbunon, offers its heartiest congratulations to
Charles Burrows on winning this summer the Dominion Boys' Singles Tennis Cham-
pionship. Last term Charles won the School trophies, both Senior and Junior, a
unique feat, and after term closed started on a career of triumphs. A member of
the Rockclif'fe Lawn Tennis Club, he won their Junior Championship and at his other
club, the Rideau, he won the Boys' Championship.
With these successes behind him Charles entered for the Ottawa and District
Championship and after some interesting matches emerged victorious. The wider,
Dominion field was now but a logical step and in Toronto Charles played six matches
to win the coveted Dominion Boys' Championship. In these gomes he was up against
competition from all the other provinces and his victory was recognized by a letter of
congratulation from the Board of Control of the City of Ottawa. We understand
too that the City intends to present Burrows with a civic crest in recognition of his
achievement. The presentation will be made by His Worship Mayor Lewis.
THIS year the Library Committee is composed of the Headmaster, Mr. Porritt,
and McCallum. Several new books hove been added to the shelves and during
the summer the Library was rearranged and each book catalogued correctly
*he file. This has aided greatly in reference work, for each book is now listed under
title, author, and subject matter.
The following books, among others of a lighter nature, were added to the Library
during the Summer Holidays:
Mazzini, Garibaldi and Cavour, by Marjorie Strachey.
Biography of Today, Edited by C. H. Lockitt.
Jim Grim, by Talbot Mundy.
Canadian History of the Great War (Vols. I and II).
Romance of the Airman, by Humphreys and Hosey.
Finding the New World, by W. T. Field.
Plays for Youth.
The Imoginory Eye- Witness.
THE ASHBURIAN 
The Committee has continued the practice of subscribing to the more popular
magazines. The Sketch, the Tatler, the Illustrated London News, Life, Punch, the
Saturday Evening Post, National Geographic, and MacLean's are to be found regu-
larly on the magazine tables.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Department of Intercourse
and Education, has continued to send us their fortnightly Reviews and Foreign Affairs
bulletins, and have also given us the following books for the Carnegie shelves.
Conference on World Economic Cooperation.
Co-operation or Coercion?^ by L. P. Jacks.
The Federalist, by Hamilton, Jay and Madison.
Analysis of the Problem of War, by Clyde Eagleton.
The Puzzle of Palestine.
Government in Fascist Italy, by Arthur Steiner.
Our Trade with Britain, by Percy Wells Bibwell.
Czechs and Germans, by Elizabeth Wiskemann.
We again take this opportunity of thanking the Carnegie Trust for their in-
terest in us, and again suggest that these shelves become more familiar to everybody.
The international situation in September, which interested and concerned every one
of us, can be better appreciated if studied in the light of information gleaned from
the Carnegie Trust's books. We take this opportunity, too, of reminding each boy
of the guiding principle behind the Trust which prompts them to send us copies of
these important commentaries on international affairs — the encouragement of the
study of international relations and the promotion of world peace.
Finally we must thank Mr. E. Malloch for presenting to the Library some in-
teresting books on Cricket. When hockey is temporally forgotten and the warm
weather begins again we feel sure that these books will receive the notice they

PEACE IN OUR TIME
By A. M. Wilson.
THE wish for peace in the past weeks has been the uppermost thought of nearly
every civilized human being in the world. The world has just experienced one
of the worst crises since before the Great War, one which might easily have
plunged man into another barbarous fight to prove that he has not yet 'forgotten
the habits he brought with him from the Stone Age. But, thank God, there has been
no war. We have heard no enemy planes roaring overhead.
We have heard, however, a great deal about a lamb being thrown to wolves, of
England's honour being offered as a sacrifice at Hitler's altar. What has really
happened?' A few million Germans living in a post-War republic have been returned
to the Fatherland, and no French blood has been shed on German soil, nor have Ger-
man bombs been rained on London.
It is always difficult, however, for us, some three thousand miles away, to picture
graphically the real horror of the imminence of war, of the immediate prospect that
within twenty-four hours, before a single British soldier has landed in France, our
own family may be struggling ineffectively to adjust their gas masks as they leave
what was once their home. Nowadays, thanks to Science, war seems to know no
bounds, and is certainly no respecter of persons, and no premise could be more false
than "It can't happen here!"
Picture for a moment a small village in almost any part of Canada.
In the mom street the sheriff sits on the doorstep of his office, chewing the best
of tobacco, with his badge of office pinned on his multi-coloured shirt, and with an
old straw hat on the back of his head that looks as if it had been through the Riel
Rebellion. He sits there talking to a group of old men, talking as only small town
men know how.
In the distance can be heard the whirr of the saw mill together with the yells of
the river men as they balance precariously on the lodgs, guiding them towards the mill.
Down the street can be seen the General Store with several horses tied to the
hitching post, sleepily waiting for their owners to complete their various purchases.
Here also the women are gathered, dressed in the brightest colours obtainable, and in
styles that were old ten years ago. They chat about everything from the latest
recipes for canning to someone who went across the street to visit a neighbour, and
stayed to share the joys of a party line. The children are gathered around the
village pump, drinking and splashing themselves with the cool water.
Over all this the stately elms close out most of the summer heat, and along the
freshly painted picket fences the vines hove crept, practically covering them and
the attractive little houses in the background.
Suddenly war has been declared, and before word reaches the little village huge
bombers are roaring overhead in flight formation, dropping their deadly missiles
nn the once peaceful hamlet.
The street is turned into chaos, the men at the sheriff's office run for shelter
nile the women in front of the store scream, faint, and scatter in every direction.
The horses break their ropes and stampede everywhere, while several buildings fall
in ruins into the street.
Now the village is a scene of utter desolation. The many stately elms lie up-
DOted across the streets and on the roofs of the houses. Several of the buildings
are burning fiercely, adding to the grimness of the scene. The corpses of the erst-
while carefree children lie around the pump, while the torn bodies of the young men
3uld turn the cruelest heart to pity.
A scene like this is typical of what would happen if war had been declared in
September. Our village was in Canada, but apart from its geographical location it
-^ight well stand for any similar village in Czechoslovakia whose fate was no less
enacing because it was real. It is these same people, the villagers of no one par-
:ular country that will be the sufferers if another holocaust is let loose on the world,
^nd it to prevent this ghastly possibility that all the energies of British statesman-
ship are being directed.
By F. W. Maclaren.
LONG ago the Druids used to celebrate a festival in honour of the sun god about
October 31st, our Hallowe'en. When Britain became a Christian land, the
priests let the people keep the festival, but gave it a new association in com-
memoration of all departed souls. Thus the festival was called All Hallows E'en,
hallow meaning holy. A belief rose up that spirits of departed souls were allowed to
visit their old homes at this time and from this we get the superstition of ghosts.
The meaning of many old customs originating at All Hallows E'en are long forgotten,
but the customs themselves ore still kept.
The observance of Hallowe'en has died out in the British Isles but in America
children go about from house to house asking for apples. Many wierd end comic
costumes ore worn and the pranks played on this celebrated occasion ore too
numerous to mention.

TWENTY YEARS AFTER
By D. Maclaren
They sTUore ihey never would forget that strife.
There never would again he cause for mar.
A few short years ihey mourned the loss of life,
Bui those returning honte were tired and poor.
And when again the world with riches flowed,
They soon forgot their vows for world-wide peace.
And quickly wandered front the proper road.
Must, then, the lust for power never cease .^
For years the crowds have gathered on the Day
To honour sons who died. And not in vain
With bowed heads and closed eyes they pray
Thai Cod will never lei them fight again.

HOW WILL YOU HAVE YOUR NEWS SIR?
By T. H. W. Read.
TO a great extent, the radio has superseded the newspaper as a fast carrier for
news to-day. When we want the latest developments in the European situation,
the radio is always the first thing we turn to.
This fact has been used to great advantage by the leaders of European
countries. Propaganda is thrown out in large doses upon the guileless heads of the
German peasant, the Russian worker and the Italian bambino. Many of these un-
fortunates are forced by decree to listen to the words of their leader whether they
like it or not, and to ignore the words of wisdom would be to end their lives in a
concentration camp or under the headsman's axe. Germany has aided the dissem-
ination of her propaganda in foreign countries by designing and producing a short
wave radio which sells for the ridiculous price of three dollars and has only one catch
— Berlin is the only station which can be reached' This device is sold in South and
We, in Canada, do not suffer from such treatment. We do, however, suffer both
from the radio and the commercialization of it. There can be no possible doubt that
the effect of the recent crisis was doubled and tripled by the fact that constant
reports were coming through and keeping it squarely in front of us. Foreign corres-
pondents from London, Prague, Berlin and Pans, were constantly giving us their side
of the crisis, and giving advice to all and sundry as to how war could be averted. At
the best, however, these reports were garbled and incomplete. The commentators
rarely succeeded in lifting themselves above the wave of mass hysteria that was
sweeping most countries of the world. For the clear, concise accounts we had to rely
on the daily paper, which had masticated and digested the "news flashes" for us.
The disastrous and far-reaching effects of this continuous war scare reached a
culmination when the radio play dramatizing H. G. Wells's story of an attack from
Mars caused such a furore in sections of the United States and Canada that many
people believed that the end of the world had actually arrived, while others hurriedly
left New Jersey, the point of the attack, and headed for California. This may seem
a shocking commentary on the 1930's, but ludicrous as it may appear it is a fair ex-
ample of the harm that radio can do, and the extent to which mass nerves can be
That the radio is doing and has done much good is an irrefutable fact. Com-
munications throughout the time of the great flood in the Mississippi valley two years
ago were completely maintained by radio Hundreds of people in the flooded areas
owe their lives to these communications, and hundreds of other lives have been saved
at sea by the S.O S sent out by sinking ships
Radio, of course, has its good points, but it has its faults Willynilly it is a
product of' our civilization and we should be proud of it as such, facilitate its advances
and abhore its setbacks so that it may serve, in the years to come, as the creditable
memento it should be of our age and generation

AIN Street. It is always the same out west, and its most prominent feature
is dust, dust and wind and heat. As we step out of our car, we can feel the
wind and heat and see the dust. A strong gust of wind brings a big tumble-
weed roiling into the town, to stop up against one of the many loose boards, niches,
or crannies in the wooden sidewalk. Then a stronger gust of wind comes along, and
the tumbleweed again goes bounding off across the prairie.
A car flashes through town at high speed on the gravel highway, and for fully
vvo minutes it is impossible to distinguish one object from the next in the horrible
dust that follows in its wake.
Then we begin to notice the people in the town. A jaunty Mounted Policeman
marches down the street with his spurs jingling at his heels. His red coat is buttoned
up and he looks cool in spite of the blazing heat that is burning up all the vegetation.
Then we see a dark, hawk-featured nitchie riding into town on his pinto pony, sitting
on a saddle-blanket and letting his legs hang down the pony's sides. He is wearing
a pair of overolls, and dusty moccasins are showing below them. A rawhide whip is
dangling loosely from his wrist. In front of Mason's General -Store there is an old
Indian squaw sitting on the edge of the sidewalk, chewing gum lustily and very noisily.
She has a small papoose beside her, and a few mangy Indian curs lie at her feet;
lazily hunting fleas. "Pop" Wilson can be seen shuffling up the street in his worn
carpet slippers and old alpaca jacket. He wears a small straw sailor hat and
fancies himself still as a member of a rowing team which he was in as a youth.
The doctor's wife sits by the drugstore window, busily knitting and watching every-
thing that goes on Once in a while she gets up to phone one of her cronies and
tell her that such-and-such was said when this person was. seen and heard talking
to that person. Over in the blacksmith's shop we can hear the clang-clang of the
hammer on the anvil. The old Scots smith is at his work again. Very soon we can
hear from the same place the sounds made by one when in pain, and a series of
good, round oaths rises rapidly on the hot, dry wind. Evidently something has hap-
pended at the smithy and the old man is letting us know it. We turn the corner and
find him dancing around with a smashed thumb, the old wheel from a democrat lying
on the ground.
We see a Bennett buggy slowly, so very slowly, coming into town on one of the
rough clay side-roads. The shaggy team of horses pulling it plods slowly on, their
heads nodding lower at each step, until their rising hoofs strike a sharp blow
against their chins Their heads come up sharply and the procedure begins all
About this time the daily local comes wheezing into the station and the moil-

later, via the beer-parlor. An ancient Ford rattles into the station-yard, drawing
on a cart a small number of cans from the creamery.
Yes, the people are very interesting, but still the ever prominent features are
wind and the dust, the wind which blows the odd patches of fox-grass flat and carries
along the stifling smell of the undernourished but very abundant sage, and the dust,

stopped, and which has, is and always will make the West a vertiable desert. '
MY TRIP TO EUROPE
WITH THE OVERSEAS EDUCATIONAL LEAGUE.
By A. R. Cowans.
ON June 25th, a party of about twenty boys and the same number of girls left
Quebec aboard the Empress of Britain for a two months cruise to Europe under
the auspices of the Overseas Educational League. Five days later our boat
docked at Cherbourg where we took the tram to Pans. Much to our disappointment
our stay in Pans was all too short as we were expected to arrive in Praha on the
evening of July 2nd.
Our one day in Pans, therefore, was spent entirely in sight seeing and, of course,
visiting such famous places as the Louvre, Versailles, and the Tomb of the Unknown
Soldier. That night just before the tram left we were taken around Paris by bus, and
it was a very beautiful sight to see the city glowing with Neon signs. Then at mid-
night we got ready for a twenty-two hour journey to Phaha, Czechoslovakia, where we
were to spend the best part of a week.
I think that everybody enjoyed themselves more in this quaint city than in all
the others put together, and yet I know that one of the most thrilling experiences
that I had was walking into the only American Restaurant in the city and hearing the
orchestra play American music. It seemed such a far cry from Central Europe to
Naturally when we visited these different cities a great amount of hospitality
was bestowed on us, and due to that we were able to witness the well known Sokol
Gymnastic Festival, which is held every eight years in Praha and at which the sur-
rounding countries by taking part try and spread good will and peace for oil time.
The finale of this pageant is portrayed by about twenty thousand people acting the
formation of Czechoslovakia after the Great War.
May I take a little time at this point to tell you of a funny experience that we
had there?' There were four of us standing at the corner of one of the oldest streets
of the city looking at a guide book when we suddenly noticed a large group of people
gathering around us, laughing and talking amongst themselves. These people, it
seemed, had never heard the English language spoken before, end when we arrived
at our hotel we found that the little gathering had followed us.
 THE ASHBURIAN
On the evening of July 9, the British Legation was kind enough to hold a dance
in our honour at which we had a wonderful time. At this dance there were dis-
tinguished people from all parts of the globe, which made the dance interesting as
well as enjoyable.
The next morning with much disappointment we left the old city and proceeded
on our way, our next stop being Nurnberg, Germany. This proved to be a very in-
teresting city as it was here that Hitler delivered his speeches of several weeks ago.
We stayed there two days and then proceeded to WiJrzberg, also in Bavaria. By a
chance of great luck we arrived in this city at the time of the St. Kelian Festival
which, of course, meant much merriment by the Germans, and as we had at our
disposal an excellent guide we too had d good time:
During this trip we did not always stay in luxurious hotels, some were very good,
and some quaint and simple, and others were .... well, you can use your imagination
there. But, hotels or no hotels, our stay in Germany was really very pleasant indeed,
and the people that we came into contact with were most charming to us in every
way, except in one city, where we had a little fuss with a party of German Boys, and
that was not altogether their fault. It appears that in this city the people were
rather prejudiced against the English and when they made a rather obscene remark
to us we became irate and replied back. A fight started, but mutual fear of the
consequences of police intervention prevented its assuming a serious aspect. We
were fortunate enough in Germany to be able to travel from Heidelberg to Frankfurt
by the well known "autoban" bus service. I hove never in all my life seen such
wonderful roads, but you cannot imagine what they are like until you have
travelled on one yourself. The buses average about seventy-five miles an hour,
■•hich is fast enough for even a Canadian.
From Frankfurt we took the train to Wiesbaden where we spent two or three
ours waiting to catch the boat which would take us down the Rhine as far as
By the time that the middle of July had arrived we were all in Cologne and on
le seventeenth of the month we took the train to Ostend, where we caught the
channel steamer to Dover. We were very lucky that day as the Channel was very
aim and you ell know how rough it can be sometimes. We took the train from
over to London where we stayed at one of the residences of London University, Con-
aught Hall. As most of us had never been in London before, and as we had all been
old what a wonderful place it was, our excitement knew no bounds.
Most of the time that we were in London we had a good deal of the time to
jrselves with the exception of the mornings, when we visited such famous places as,
ne Tower of London, Eton, Westminster Abbey, Stoke Poges, and Buckingham
alace. Myself end three other friends of mine were fortunate enough during our
^oy in London to see the King and Queen on their return trip from France. I do not
nink that I have ever sensed a greater thrill in seeing two people than I did that
ight. It is naturally a great thrill to see one's sovereign for the first time.
THE ASHBURIAN 
I think that I am right in saying that the boys found Eton the most interesting
of the places that we visited in England for the simple reason that we liked to see what
the other schools are like and compare them to the ones that we have here in
Canada. Most of us decided that we preferred the Canadian Schools to theirs.
By the end of our ten days we were supposedly worn out with all the travelling
that we had done, so it was decided that a few days of rest would do us a world of
good, and we went to Eastbourne, a seaside resort — not however to rest, for we all
rented bicycles and explored the surrounding countryside. Often we would leave
about eight o'clock in the morning and not arrive back at our hotel until dusk.
After we were "rested", we proceeded up to the manufacturing city of Birming-
ham where we stayed at private homes. There was not very much to see in this city
except the Cadbury Chocolate Company and the Dunlop Tire concern, and we left
the Midlands for the Lake District.
Keswick was our last stop in England. In this beautiful old town we did as the
Romans did and climbed. Our first difficulty on arriving was to find a place to sleep.
The town was crowded with tourists, and carrying our bags we trudged wearily along
looking for accommodation. Finally four of us secured rooms near where the others
The most energetic thing that we did during the whole summer was undertaken
at Keswick when we climbed the famous Great Gable. The entire journey that day
was about twenty-five miles, which used up all our remaining energy. The most dis-
heartening thing about climbing that mountain was the fact that when we thought
that we had reached the top we saw the real peak. Great Gables, still looming up
ahead. We were only on Green Gable, a smaller peak. What a climb' After we got
back we all jumped into a cold bath and stayed there for half an hour or more.
After our energetic excursion at Keswick, we proceeded to Scotland, our first
stop being Edinburgh, where we stayed at New Battle Abbey, a huge mansion given
by some wealthy man to the government to be used as a hostel for tourists. I must
admit that we were not altogether enthused with Edinburgh, but that was partly due
to the fact that we were anxious to reach Glasgow and see the Empire Exhibition,
and so we only stayed in Edinburgh two days and then proceeded on to Glasgow
We arrived in Glasgow on the afternoon of August 18th, and then we went
directly to the Exhibition where we spent that afternoon and evening. I might add
that it is the general opinion on the other side that Canada has the best representa-
tion in the entire Exhibition.
Glasgow ended our tour, and with a host of pleasant memories, and the remem-
brance of much kindness and hospitality, we sailed from Greenock on August 20th.

THE COUP DE GRACE
By R. Rossi Longhi.
I SHALL always remember the first and only time I ever went mountain climbing.
It all started one afternoon when I was staying at a resort up in the Apennine
Mountains, in Italy. I was sitting on the porch with other boys and girls watch-
ing the sun go down in an awe-inspiring play of light. The conversation turned on
mountain climbing and I felt much ashamed of not being able to join in the conversa-
tion, having never done any myself. My shame increased when I noticed that even
all the girls seemed to have done some, and so I decided to take up climbing myself
the very next day.
On the following morning, therefore, I hired the best and most experienced guide
there was, and by five in the morning I had already begun the task of removing my
inexperience in this branch of sport. The guide said that as it was the first time I
had ever been on a climb, we would only do a small peak, but I insisted that I had
no love for mountain climbing and that, therefore, I would hove to learn all about
it that very day and insisted that we scale a higher peak than any of my friends had
ever done before. But when I said this I knew it need not be very high because my
friends were the type who believed, as I did, in taking life easy. Yet, being unini-
tiated in the sport, I was soon having a hard time. When we were about two-thirds
of the way up, a hail storm overtook us, but the only thing we could do was to con-
tinue. The ascent now became so difficult that I freely cursed my ambition and
conceit and swore I would never be so foolish as to try mountain climbing again.
Finally, after much labour and toil, we reached the summit on which a "refuge"
was situated, safe and sound. That day we were not able to descend for by the
time night came the hail was falling as hard as ever. At noon the next day, how-
ever, we were able to do so without any mishap.
To my great surprise I found out that when I told my friends of my exprience,
they all roared with laughter. After much questioning I was able to find out that
fhe whole scene of talking about mountain climbing had been carefully staged so as
- goad me into hiring a guide and going up. And finally the coup dc grace was
given me when I discovered that they themselves had never even climbed a hill
My friends tell me that I am less of a braggadocio than I used to be.

By R. W. Stedman.
Twos one of the sensations of the century. It hod rocked not only a nation but
the whole world. Every newspaper carried the blazing black headline:
"Prominent Professor Discovers Secret of Ancient Egypt."
What lay behind this headline is of great interest.
Professor Littlecombe was a very eminent scientist. As a hobby he travelled a
great deal and it was his habit to pick up little mementoes along the way. While
in Egypt he bought a bronze vase from a curio dealer. It was sealed and covered
with strong hieroglyphics. He took the vase home to England and for some time
it stood on his desk.
One morning after breakfast the Professor was strolling around in his pyjamas,
as was his custom, when he thought of opening his Egyptian vase. Accordingly he
drilled a hole in the bronze casing and discovered that his antique contained a
strange liquid. Being a scientist he immediately proceeded to test this liquid and,
all other tests failing him, he decided to taste it. He sipped the contents of the
vase and found that he hod discovered something which was very sweet and pleasant
to the taste. He hod drunk quite a bit of the liquid when the thought come to him,
"If only I were in Egypt I could discover . . . . "
But he got no further. The next thing Professor Littlecombe knew,, he was
standing in a dusty, crowded street in Cairo. Well may the surprise of the dusky
Egyptian fellahs be imagined as they beheld a European dressed in pyjamas standing
in their midst. Although not a little amazed at the result of his experiment the
Professor did not lose his sense of duty to research. He observed that whereas he
had left his home early in the morning, the sun was high in the sky over Cairo. There-
fore his transportation must hove been instantaneous for Cairo time is always about
three hours ahead of London time. He decided that, as he still held the vase, the
best way to get home was to drink some more of its magic contents. Accordingly he
soon found himself in his laboratory once more.
Naturally Professor Littlecombe realized the importance of his discovery. He
held a press conference and told the reporters of his amazing experience. At once
thousands of letters came in from famous scientists, historians and archaeologists,
asking to be shown this liquid which had become known as "Egyptian Nectar."
One of these. Sir Henry Bold, a prominent archaeologist, visited Professor Little-
combe and asked to be given a practical demonstration of the powers of this strange
liquid. The Professor at first did not wish to accede to Sir Henry's wishes. But as
Sir Henry was President of the National Research Society, Professor Littlecombe
agreed to show him the unique experiment.
THE ASHBURIAN 
Sir Henry was shown the bronze vase which contained the liquid end being an
archaeologist he immediately became interested in the strange characters which
were cut in the bronze. He asked the Professor about these figures and found that
that gentleman was not aware of their meaning. Sir Henry knew the approximate
period of the inscription but said that he could not translate it without his key to
the early Egyptian language. However, as the matter seemed of minor importance
they decided to proceed with the experiment.
As it was in the evening, both Sir Henry and the Professor wore their dinner-
jackets. Apparently they forgot this fact for they decided to wish themselves to a
small army outpost in Burma. The Professor was to hold the vase and let Sir
Henry drink and then he too would drink and follow him to Burma. The Professor
was to hold the vase and let Sir Henry drink, and then he too would drink and follow
him to Burma.
Sir Henry put his lips to the vase and instantly found himself standing on a
cold, dark, mountain road. He had only been there a few minutes when he noticed
the white shirt-front of Professor Littlecombe in front of him. With great joy the
two men congratulated each other. Then they began to look at their new surround-
ings. The fact which struck them most was that it was bitingly cold on this moun-
tain road. It was so cold that their patent-leather pumps slipped on the ice-covered
rocks. They decided to return at once to London. But suddenly Sir Henry cried
out that he had found his key to the Egyptian language in an inside pocket. Eagerly
he took the vase and with the aid of a match's light he was able to read the in-
"If more than one use this sacred drink, it will from that time be useless to
At first the two men did not grasp the full meaning of this sentence, but when
they sipped the liquid they found that nothing happened. This was not very encourag-
ing, to say the least. They decided to look for the military fort which they had meant
to land in. To their relief they discovered that they were right under the standstone
walls of quite a large building. A little investigation showed this to be the fort in
question. Accordingly they hammered on the iron-bound gate.
Never was there a more surprised man than the little Cockney who opened that
gate to two men m evening clothes. They asked to be taken to the commanding officer
and in a few moments stood in a small office. The officer who greeted them was
naturally in his mess kit, for in every British Army unit the officers always dress
It was six weeks this time before the Professor and his friends saw the Strand
again, and needless to soy the liquid known as "Egyptian Nectar" has never been
heard of since.

THERE are many interesting characters to be found in books— good characters,
bad characters, and even indifferent characters. Some of these were' depicted
for our enjoyment many years ago— the Clerk of Oxenford, Tamerlane, and o
host of people who are neither particularly good nor outstandingly bad. It was not,
however, until the 1840's that what we may call a convenient character suddenly
appeared in our literature. About that time Charles Dickens invented two people
by the name of Spenlow and Jorkins. These two gentlemen were partners; one,
Spenlow, was the active member of the partnership, while the other, Jorkins, was
more retiring by nature and quite willing to allow his friend Spenlow full scope in the
exercising of his powers.
Now while this Mr. Spenlow was an honest man in some respects he was not too
scrupulous in others, and he found his partner's retiring nature not only unhamper-
ing in the fulfiling of his personal wishes but decidedly convenient, for upon his part-
ner, who kept so much in the background, he could fasten all the blame for any
hard dealings or unpleasant situations that might arise from the exigencies of
Now of course it would be pleasant if we all had some such silent partner upon
whom we could cast blame for any of our actions that we were not particularly proud
of, but It would be rather hard, surely, on the partner concerned, and so it is fortu-
nate that in the normal run of things few such partnerships exist. But the fact
that none of us have such convenient partners does not preclude our thinking that
we have, and we are all too prone to blame our mistakes on anyone or anything but
ourselves. We often forget that whatever course of action we may follow we ore
responsible for its consequences. How often do we hear "It was not my fault. So-
and-so started it"^ "If it had been properly made in the first place it wouldn't hove
come apart".? Is not this exactly what the crafty lawyer was doing in Dickens's Dovid
Copperfield when he blamed Mr. Jorkins for his seeming hard dealings? Are not we in-
venting a silent partner to suit our convenience )ust because trouble looms on the
horizon? Again, here in School, when we hove been guilty of some minor malefaction,
such as breaking a rule, would it not be infinitely more commendable to admit our
wrongdoing and take the consequences than hurry pell-mell to find some innocent
Mr. Jorkins to act as scape-goat for us, and bear the brunt of any corrective attack
that our own misdoing may have warranted? Of course.
JUNIOR SCHOOL NOTES
WE ore glad to welcome to the Junior School, Leonowens, Arnold, Patterson,
Thomson II, Lone, Nelles and Howe, one of our Junior Editors.
Bo-lo bats seem to have been the prevalent nuisance in the Junior School,
'owords mid-term many lives were imperilled by myriads of rubber balls flying about
n every direction. The era of the bo-lo bat finally waned, however, and the halls once
nore became safe for the innocent bystander.
A quarrel developed one day between two of our compatriots. Satisfaction was
:ained under Queensbury rules, with Mr. McLeish officiating. The subject of who
.-.on has not yet been settled, and, in fact, other quarrels have been started on the
decision. Your Editor's decision is reserved.
The first snowfall was hailed by the Juniors as the golden opportunity for
evenge on the various Seniors and Intermediates who had incurred their displeasure
nee the last Winter. This idea proved to be a boomerang, however, and the Juniors
•ere forced to regret their forwardness.
The gentle art of cheering was introduced into the Junior school this term and
the various teams were greeted with gusto when they arrived on the field.
On Hallowe'en the Juniors were entertained by the Headmaster and Mrs. Arch-
dale. Afterwards many of them went on a door to door canvass for apples and sweets.
Maclaren I is the Junior's Prefect this year, responsible for roll-call, "soaking"
them and keeping them in order. His personal popularity is only exceeded by his
Two Juniors are basking in reflected glory to their heart's content. Leonowens
and Arnold ore fagging for Borden and Mam, mightiest of the mighty — games' cap-
tains. The hoi polloi, meaning the rest of the Juniors, unfortunately don't seem to
realize the fact that there is aristocracy in their midst.
Mr. McLeish is now looking after Junior Shooting. We hope he will be still with
us next term!

GREAT keenness has been shewn by the Juniors as well as by the Seniors, and
they too had a good season. Mr. Waterfield and Mr. Mercer hove' given a
great deal of time to coaching and should be pleased with the result of their
Here are one or two suggestions that might be helpful to the Juniors. Remem-
ber that no amount of shouting can move a football one inch. That kicking it straight
at someone is useless. That being in the proper position makes it more likely for
one to receive the ball than chasing it all over the field without ever catching it up.
That Football is a team game and combination is essential. That without practice
no one can lean to kick or to control a ball properly.
If these few suggestions are borne in mind and acted upon, next year should
be very successful.
ROCKCLIFFE PUBLIC SCHOOL, HOME, WON 2 - 1.
After only a few minutes of play the Rockcliffe Public School opened the score
with an easy ground shot from centre forward which the Ashbury goal-keeper fumbled,
and from then until half time the match was very evenly played, the ball travelling
from one end of the field to the other. Just before the whistle blew McLaren II
scored for Ashbury on a pass from Abbott-Smith.
The second half was also even, but both teams broke away several times. On one
occasion four of their forwards got clear with no one between them and the Ashbury
goal-keeper. However, he was equal to the occasion and the ball was cleared. Late
in the game Brown scored the final goal of the match.
The line-up was as follows: Goal, MacDonald; Backs, Bourget, Snell II, Half
Backs, Lawrence II, Key, Phillips; Forwards, Abbott-Smith I, Patterson, McLaren II,
Brown, Maclaren III.
ROCKCLIFFE PUBLIC SCHOOL, AWAY, DRAW 1 - 1.
The second Junior match was played on the Public School field towards the end
of October. A very close game, both sides were only able to score once each. Ash-
bury secured the first goal, when McLaren II scored on a return from a goal kick.
In the second half Topp of the Public School succeeded m putting a high sho.
from the side into the Ashbury net, and the game ended without any further scoring
■by either side

ROCKCLIFFE PUBLIC SCHOOL, HOME, WON 3 - 0.
The third match against the Rockcliffe Public School was played on the Ashbury
grounds on Wednesday, November 2nd, and ended in a well deserved win for Ash-
bury by three goals to nothing. In the first half the ball went from the one end of
the field to the other very rapidly, though neither side looked like scoring. The
isitors seemed more likely to score until the Ashbury forwards took the ball close
in and Patterson scored with a well placed shot. From then on Ashbury held the
upper hand and only over eagerness, resulting too often in off side, prevented a much
larger crop of goals. McLaren II scored both the Ashbury goals in the second half.
There was some very nice passing in the forward line, with each man keeping his
position, and the result was an object lesson to those who favour kick and rush
ROCKCLIFFE PUBLIC SCHOOL, AWAY, DRAW - 0.
On Thursday, November 3rd, another match was played against Rockcliffe Public
School. This was a draw, neither side succeeding in their attempts to score. The
Ashbury team had much more of the game than their opponents but the small ground
and complete inability of the forwards to direct their shots towards the goal proved
too much for them.
The Ashbury Team for these two matches was the same as in the second match.
THE ART CLUB
By A. A. V. Waterfield, Esq.
SOMETHING of the Art Room's aims and achievements were seen on Closing Day
last June when a small Exhibition of lino-cuts, paintings and drawings was
arranged in one of the Junior class rooms.
This term the Juniors again have opportunities of showing and developing their
artistic talents on the same lines as last year. We have, however, changed our head-
quarters and working hours. Instead of meeting on Saturday mornings, when so
many other interests distracted or even deprived us of members, we now have two
regular periods of class time set aside for the Art Room. It is a pleasant change
from the daily routine to experiment with poster paints, cut pieces of linoleum into
something resembling a ship at sea or a motor car in the city, or design the cars and
aeroplanes of the future. There have been several good efforts at imaginary land-
scapes, but most of the drawings still show a decided preference for the mechanical.
During the last weeks of term the Art Room will probably find scope for its
inventive ability in the production of Christmas cards.
As a last word I should like to suggest as a motto for the Juniors 'Keenness
tempered with Patience.' Only the very great masters can produce good work m a
short time; we lesser men must be prepared at first to see a constant succession of
daubs and unsatisfactory sketches as the reward of our striving.

THE ASHBURIAN 
REFLECTIONS OF AN ARTIST
By David Key.
HE Art Room is situated on the top floor and looks down into the back yard.
Many ingenious paintings have been made in this room. What some of them
are is still a mystery.
In the room itself there is a large table that used to be used for ping-pong but
has since come down in the world, and is now littered with pens, pencils, brushes and
paints of every description. At one end of the room are three cupboards, and for a
long time in one of these there reposed a piece of rope! On another side of the
room are three basins which are used for mixing paints, washing brushes, and so on.
Near these basins there is a large chest of drawers, full of masterpieces, and hang-
ing on the walls are the glorious, bright paintings of the Class of '38.
One side of the room I have neglected. It is taken up with three windows, to
let in light, or let out artists who have seen the extent of their crime.
The Manager and Keeper of the menagerie is Mr. Waterfield. Every Tuesday
and Thursday Forms 1 1 and 1 1 1 troop up to the Art Room to complete the Great Work.
As a matter of fact there is more wasting of paint and breath than there is honest
labour done, and the bell is usually drowned in yells in the vain hope that the Master
will not have heard it and make us return below to the horrors of Latin.
(The Editors refuse to be held responsible for any disillusioned or cynical
z'iezi^'S expressed in the above article. As we have also tried to make daubs of paint
resemble, even vaguelx. the creatures of our iuuujination. the despair of the t^.'nter
at the time of i^ritiiui is readilx understandable.)
 THE ASHBURJAN
(A travesty of History in tico brief scenes)
By Kenneth Abbott-Smith
Scene I. The opening scene in this enligJitoiijuj drama takes place in the
throne room of the Royal Palace of King Cnut and zJiicJi. by modern
standards, is not much — as palaces go.)
The King is found playing solitaire with highly primitive playing cards.
1st Lord: May I respectively suggest that Your Majesty is cheating himself in play-
ing that card. It should come from the pack^ not from the sleeve.
Cnut: Shut up, dog. Who's cheating who?
1st Lord: May the King live forever! You, Sire, are the greatest king these islands
Cnut: And stop continually praising me.
1st Lord: Quite, sire. But you are the greatest king, just the same.
'Enter another lord."!
2nd Lord: Hail King. You are the greatest
Cnut: Stop it! Will nothing stop this senseless praisingi^
Lords 1 &2: Nothing Sire.
Cnut: Then you must be shown a horrible example of the useleSsness of a king when
facing the forces of nature. Where is our royal sedan?
1st Lord: Aren't we rather ahead of our royal times?
Cnut: No you fool! I mean my portable chair. Get it and convey our royal person
to the edge of the Channel where I may hold converse with Father Neptune.
Scene II. King Cnut. seated in his chair by the edge of the i<.'ater is dangling
his toes in the sea. It's cold for the time of year and the attendant lords
Lnut; Now gentlemen, the sea is coming in, is it not?
1st Lord: Yes Sire.
Cnut: Don't lie to me. It is on its way out. We'll have to wait till it comes in again.
Where are the royal cards?'
1st Lord: Here, my lord.
Cnut: Roll down my sleeves so that I may play a short game of patience, after the
(Enter a stranger. He is of the sour type, mangy whiskers and all. He
carries a book and a typewriter, of all things.)
Cnut: Who are ye — you.
^'-■anger: I, sir, am c historian whose duty it is to bore boys and girls with tiresome
facts about things that have happened in the past, some true, some magnifi-
cently false. Most half mode up.
Cnut: Well sir? Whet do you want of me?
Stranger: To see you rebuke the waves.
King But I can't. I don't intend to.
THE ASHBURIAN 
Stranger: Well, leave that to me. I'll fool 'em.
King: Ow' That was cold. The water has come in. The tide's returned. (To Lords ^
Now gentlemen. I'll prove to you once and for all that I am not all-powerful.
(To Father Neptune alias the Channel) You Sir, retreat! I, Cnut, command
you to return to France, or whatever it's called.
(The tide emits the equivalent of a snicker.)
You see, my trusties?' In she comes, harder than before. Now cm I so great?
(But flic lords have all vanished to help ihc historian report the facts
wrongly. Cnut. bitfcrlx disappointed at the failure of his lesson dries his
feet on his gozcn and toddles off.)
By H. A. C. Lane.
Aeroplanes are very important things. Planes were invented by the Wright
brothers. When aeroplanes began they had two wings and hardly any body.
Even the early aeroplanes could get in the air and fly, but only for a few yards
and then they came down.
When the first plane flew across the Channel it caused a lot of excitement.
When Lindberq flew across the Atlantic later on he flew in a plane named "The
Spirit of St. Louis." He crossed the ocean in 1927.

THE GREATEST VOYAGE OF DRAKE
By W. A. Nelles.
IT was in the year 1519 that Drake set out on the first round-the-world trip. He
had great hardships to bear, for you must remember that there were not very
many things to guide him. But despite these hardships he set out. His first stop
was Mexico, where he raided the Spaniards. Thence he went to Cape Horn which is
noted for its storms. He rounded the Cape safely and sailed up to the western coast of
Mexico where he fought with a Spanish galleon from which he took great riches.
Then as some other galleons came up, he sailed north but had to put in for repairs
in a small boy where the natives, however, welcomed them as gods! Leaving this
bay Drake set out for China where he got silks, jewels and pearls for his Queen.
From here he sailed to Africa where he got more jewels, and finally he sailed home
to England where he was handsomely rewarded for being the first Englishman to
sail around the world.
